I would probably classify this game as an ‘Endless Runner’


Nah, that’s not an endless runner.
I think that its own genre. The first game I remember in that genre was Yetisports pingu throw in 2004.


Would gameplay like that of Flappy Bird count? Or must it be a game where you can’t really directly control your height?


This is my favorite of that type


Flappy Bird is a little last week :slight_smile: but why not take the concept and remix it a little to tie in the theme a little more closely.


Oh yeah, love that one as well :). Played it to the end hahaha.


After doing some research, I found that these were called launch games. They have a whole section on kongregate at


@gaphrod That is a pretty awesome find^^


So any screenie or wip people can share yet?


I got something, but I still need a backdrop.



Thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:


Wish I could have created something for this but I started a new job three months ago and I am mentally spent by the time I get home now. “Next” Game Jam though, I’ll have hired some good people to work under me by then and can take a breath. Love the products, company and your commitment to doing these jams. /cheers


I may not have access to the internet on the 20th, is there any other way to submit a game? Can I just post a link here, without putting it in some form like last time?

Hi, I finally finished my work on the contest. Do I just publish a link to it here or is there a form to fill out?

Thanks in advance! :smiley:


Here is my attempt… Its called “Monsters Fun” Hope I was within the rules :smile:

-Click the mouse button when you see the Bat to give an additional push
-The Mines will push you up and right… the clouds will push you down.

How far can you go! :wink:


FINAL Project “Turbo”.

Press space to dictate how fast the car moves, includes upgrades and achievements.
Sorry for the load time, but I didn’t have time to create asset bundles. After the initial load, if you play the game a second time, the load should be much faster.

Have fun! :smile:
